I picked up a massive amount of Warmaster a few years ago for a fairly good price (free! ) and I've decided that as my new years resolution I'm going to actually get them built up and painted. Then I will worry about finding players, but I reckon with 3 large armies to choose from I may be able to encourage some other players to try it.

Trouble is, the Orc army only has 1 blister of Goblins so I'll need a few more to meet the minimum requirements. I could splash out on the GW ones, but the last Epic stuff I bought was of questionable casting quality. I've since heard that given GW's lack of interest in Specialist Games the molds are starting to show their age with little chance of replacement.

Does WM items suffer from poor casting these days?

Any (cheaper!) alternative figures for Goblins available out there?

Thanks.
